Title : UNESCO : world heritage list

Description :
The UNESCO World Heritage list contains over 850 sites, monuments and areas of archaeological, historical and environmental interest which are deemed to be of global significance. This is the official website of the list which provides basic information on each entry together with photographs, grid references and conservation reports on each monument or place as well and which outlines the criteria required for inclusion in the list. The list is arranged alphabetically by country, 141 at the time of review, and links take you to the relevant UNESCO session documents. The photographs can be viewed as thumbnails or at a larger screen-size scale. Many of the entries have hyperlinks to partner organisations or tourist websites in each country which provide additional documentation for the heritage sites. The list is also available in French and Spanish and can be read with our without frames. Apart from the substantive information on UNESCO World Heritage sites, which will interest a wide audience, both amateur and professional, this concise but highly useful resource also provides insights into the politics and practice of heritage management on a world scale.
